Reviewer: John M. - - June 12, 2010
Subject: Narration Is In German
That's not necessarily a bad thing, since you can follow what happens without understanding the narrator.

However, the film spoils the signature moment of Neil Armstrong setting foot on the lunar surface and uttering the famed, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." The narrator talks over it.

They also use it first thing in the film and skip over it at the point it should come in the chronological telling of the story.

The picture quality is good and the lowered rating is because I would like to have heard more of the astronauts in their own words, which, I understand considering the language but hearing more of the actual sound from the time would have added a lot.

He does stop speaking in time for you to hear "Tranquility base: The Eagle has landed," clearly.
